    New UNC Coins

    For standard coins the mint will produce them as required (central bank dictates demand I think) and they can sit in storage until commercial bank branches request them (but they just request money in general and get what they get).
  2. It is sometimes frustrating collecting coins that money can't buy but it sure is satisfying ticking those boxes.
  3. I didn't think New Zealand ever had sterling silver coins. Maybe try the tissue test to be sure? If it looks white through a tissue it's silver; if it looks grey it's cupronickel (from memory).
  4. It would take a lot to split me from a rare coin - anything rare enough to pull that kind of money would be too worth keeping for me.
  5. I got a copy of both of Hocking's books recently and they both have letters saying "With compliments of the deputy master of the Royal Mint" in the front. Did all copies come with these letters?

    Goubys The British bronze penny .

    Not sure if a fully updated edition is happening. I got my email anyway.
  7. Hm, I always considered sovereigns to be British coins though the early Sydney Mint sovereigns were Australian. Not sure how that worked as in 1921 or 1922 the exchange rate changed and British coins stopped being used in Australia.
  8. Where is that image from? The Royal Mint?

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Nice score!
  10. Any sales/new examples since then?
  11. I know there was a topic on this before but I couldn't find it - so, anyone know of any other examples of an 1872 die letter C farthing coming to light? I haven't seen anything here on in Coin News but I'm not sure where else to check.

    1897 dot penny. Advice needed.

    I vaguely recall reading a similar theory before so you may be onto something - might have been in one of Michael Gouby's books? I really can't remember now.

    Oh all good - I just hadn't visited here in a few months and thought it was old news - it was only mentioned last week now that I look back.
